    Honestly if there was a short cut to be taken Robby would have used it too.

    "It was a good day"


    "It was my first marathon stage with a fast opening day. I rode near Benavides before the refuelling stop, but I then made a slight mistake inside the controlled speed area and I lost some time. I attacked to close the gap and, in the end, I wasn't that far behind. It was a good day, bringing the bike home in one piece was crucial. I'm happy for me and Honda."

    He (Creed) just gave back 1:30 on the leaders and one provisional position and he's not being held up on piste. Something odd happened

    Her pace has been to give up 30-60 seconds each WP so with stopped time being erased she'd be more likely to be +8+

    truck 529 - Pascal de Baar blazed with ‘revenge'
    Tears sprang into the eyes of Pascal de Baar when he witnessed the truck of his Mammoet team captain Martin van den Brink in flames.

    • [​IMG]
    The Renault had caught fire in the second stage and burned down to the ground. With his leader, who was aiming for a top 10 spot in the truck race, out of competition, Pascal de Baar suddenly and unwillingly got a new role to fulfil. No longer he had to be the back-up for Van den Brink, but he could race for his own best. And that is exactly what the Dutchman did in the next stage already. De Baar and his crew - co-pilot Wouter de Graaff and mechanic Martin Roesink - were blazed with motivation to pay back for the lost truck and moved up into the top 10. “It is terrible to see any truck burn down, but this really hurts,” De Baar said. “I know how much work and effort Martin has put into building and developing this truck for the past two years. I've never before raced for a result for my own, always to support others, but now that we are in this position, we are going to give it our very best. Being in the top 10 immediately is a bit of a surrealistic idea, but I'm determined to hold on to it.”

    At WP 10 Loeb gained back 20 seconds on Sainz and moved back into a likely 2nd position behind Peterhansel.
